Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
Early in 1939 the small Indian state of Aundh adopted a new constitution based on the principles of 'village democracy' advocated by Gandhi. Francis Watson was these to help, and in this programme he recalls what 1939 meant to him not only in the midst of this experiment but in his wanderings far and wide in India while the war clouds were gathering in the West.

: FOUR ROMAN PORTRAITS Mark Antony and Octavian

Talk by Professor F. E. Adcock
These two portraits, of Antony and of his la>t and greatest rival, the young Octavian (the future Emperor Augustus), are also a study of one of the most crucial periods in European history. ' Octavian's victory,' Professor Adcock says, ' the response to Antony and Cleopatra's challenge, meant that the Mediterranean world was united and the day of an Eastern and Western Empire was deferred for centuries.'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
